CLEVELAND — A Cleveland Metropolitan School District coach has been placed on leave following accusations that he inappropriately touched a student, according to a letter sent to the coach by district officials.

Christopher Hubbard was placed on paid administrative leave and reassigned to the East Professional Center where he will have no contact with students, according to the district. He was reassigned on Monday.

Hubbard has been the head football coach at John F. Kennedy Senior High School in Cleveland since 2014, a district spokesperson said. He has also served as an assistant track and assistant wrestling coach with the district.

“We take seriously all allegations of misconduct. The paraprofessional has been removed from duty pending an outcome of the investigation,” the district said in a statement.
